Belgian chanteuse Lara Fabian blesses us with a brand new album, "Lockdown Sessions," a versatile collection of tracks that saw the "I Will Love Again" singer collaborate with producer Mohammed Denebi during the early stages of the pandemic. Lara shared, “As the world entered a total immobilization last March and a surge of uncertainties, I felt the urge to do some soul-searching and seek out the positive aspects that we could take from everything we were going through.“ Like many creatives, Lara turned global turmoil into a time for artistry, as she continues: “I then explored new ways of writing, singing and making music. I am really proud to announce the release of a very special and limited edition with unique musical experiences that I have named: “Lockdown Sessions.” I hope you all enjoy, listen and fly freely to each of these musical experiences that I offer. It’s a pretty special album for me that I dedicate to my fans, that I dedicate to you." Immediate highlights for us were the striking "Le Passage," a track that begins near spoken word then transforms into an ethereal electronic trip-hop style track. The slinky electronic "Dance Under the Rain" is a treat, an icy cool electronic dance-pop affair. "Live Your Life" has a positive message and ear worming electronic melody, while "Introspection" allows Lara’s vocals to shine against striking piano arrangements. The mellow club sounds of "One" serve as a beautiful closer – an afterparty to a sumptuous musical banquet.
